Nicole (Peak) & Chris Dorsey planned on hitting the Irish Toad before their reception, but a little flexibility and a lot of rain let them have fun at Nichols Park instead.

Nicole wanted to have just the essential portraits taken before & after the ceremony at Our Saviour Catholic Church, and wanted to have fun portraits taken at the park. We arrived with looming storm clouds. After a couple photos, it started drizzling and Nicole made a beeline for shelter. The the downpour commenced! The couple and their wedding party spent the next half hour on the pavilion porch, posing for portraits, hanging out with friends, and having a great time. They never made it to The Toad, but with a little flexibility they still enjoyed the day.
